This interdisciplinary focus on cultural constructions and identity is complemented with courses outside the American Studies department. Through majoring in American Studies, students will gain transferable skills in critical thinking, verbal and written communications, analytical thinking, and research, all of which are sought by employers and advanced degree programs.Meet with an Advisor
